Kris Humphries can laugh at himself, understands why you do, too

Kris Humphries reality-show marriage to Kim Kardashian was a joke. Not really a funny one.

But some people are laughing at the Nets power forward. And that includes Humphries himself, the power forward told the New York Post in a Page 6 interview.

“Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t make fun of other people,” he says. “I’m open to being made fun of. You can’t take life too seriously or be too sensitive because it’s like, who wants to live like that?”

I’m glad someone is laughing at this.

Humphries is trying to get the marriage annulled saying that it was all a publicity stunt to boost ratings. If you don’t think that’s plausible, you don’t know reality television. Even if it was a stunt Humphries still gets some blame for falling for the trick, he gets blame for being blinded by Kardashian’s… well, I think we know. (I’m talking about her television show and the lust for fame, of course. I don’t know what you are thinking of.)

But is he as bad a guy as the editing room and tabloid headlines made him out to be? No. If you’re looking for NBA players to dislike, there are other more worthy candidates.

Humphries is going to be back in the spotlight in Brooklyn, especially if he does major interviews and photo shoots with models (and especially if he averages 13.8 points and 11 rebounds a game again). Regardless, he’s still going to have some people who think he’s disgusting. He’s going to get booed and snickered at.

But at least he can laugh about it.

    I feel so bad for this guy sometimes. What makes this even more wierder/crazier is that he’s signed to a team who’s part owner is friends with/makes records with the dude that’s now currently banging his ex-wife. Wow!

    No one cares Herphries.

      Didn’t mean to make you cry Nets fans. I just wasn’t sure you existed.

      How would you not know that? I know it is completely meaningless news but you would literally have to avoid 99% of all websites and cable stations and magazines to have never heard that.

    I’d feel sorry for him if he hadn’t been such a whore. Nah, never mind, I wouldn’t. And I can’t figure out what’s so attractive about a fat Kardashian ass..

      Who’s Kanye?

    Isn’t admitting that you got married for a publicity stunt illegal?

    Sure is illegal to get married to someone to keep them in the country. Seems like the same case.

    Dude, just be glad you can walk away from her with your pecker intact!

    As for Kanye, the guy is a freak. A real head case. Those two deserve each other but are hopefully both sterile. Snooki giving birth should be enough of a test for humanity.
